Back Blast – The Escalator at The Abyss – 01/05/2022

It was great to get up and get out this morning after being on the sidelines for a few days with a sore back.


  • Uncle Sam (R)
  • F-Stop
  • Dauber
  • Flip Flop
  • Timeshare
  • Natty Light
  • Harbaugh
  • Viking
  • Jolly Rancher (Q)

It was great seeing Harbaugh back out in the gloom – even though he had to bail a little early to make sure he wasn’t late to work. Doesn’t matter – he still rolled out of bed like the rest of us because he wanted to get right. And he’s also stepping in as the Site Q on Monday at The Abyss. Mad respect.

At 0530am, time was called and we got to work at the basketball courts for some COP that included the standard fanfare from me:

  • SSH
  • Downward Dog + Runners Stretches
  • Grass Grabbers
  • Toy Soldiers

The Thang – 21s:

We then moved to the road where I introduced the thang which is a rendition of 11s, but with a rep count of 21 – thus, appropriately named 21s or Blackjack.

We started next to the playground with curls and moseyed down to the island where the boat ramp road access is where we did merkins. We started with 20 curls and 1 merkin. Then, we kept going back and forth with this but I did call an audible to switch to skull crushers when we got to 10 on the curls – kept with the merkins though.

Flip Flop and Dauber crushed it as expected. Others were right behind and then there was me dragging as the six after not posting in almost a week. No worries, we all got better and went at our own pace.


Countarama, namearama, announcements and intentions.

For announcements, join the Star Course ruck channel for the monthly ruck event! And, the banquet RSVP link was sent out today along with the ballot for the coveted F3 Louisville awards. Hope everyone is able to make it!

Ended with an Our Father.

Always humbled to lead – Jolly Rancher out!
